"Writers Resist" hold protests against Trump


There is a group called “Writers Resist Trump” (a public group on Facebook ). You have to join the group (which requires approval) to get their posts.

There is also a Writers Resist or Write Our Democracy group.



The groups held a protest in Lafayette Park outside the White House early Saturday night.  I did not hear about the protest until this morning.  The group seems to be a bit tightly knit.  Here is the story on WJLA.
 
It’s significant that writers as a group see Trump’s authoritarianism as a long term existential threat.
